I love coffered ceilings! There’s a caveat though (it’s there always?)…leaving them in their original wood state can make them feel a wee bit dated. I’m working on a new client project that has gorgeous coffered ceilings and my goal is to transform them into beautiful current day gorgeousness. Before I get into some coffered ceilings ideas…let’s chat a bit about Project Hodge Podge.
I feel like you’re going to hear me say this a lot. But I love my clients. And this new one is no exception…she’s awesome, her house is awesome, it’s all awesome. This home has insane amounts of potential, and I can’t wait to transform it into the dream home it deserves to be. Right now the home is a “hodge podge” (her words not mine!) of stuff. And I’m going to turn it into a space that feels welcoming and one she and her husband can be proud of (I predict more dinner parties in their future).
Speaking of her husband, he’s a super talented photographer, and we’re going to use his beautiful photos to add personality, not to mention beauty to their walls. Check out his stuff here (amazing stuff, right? How lucky am I?).
So, here’s a picture of where we’re at today.
What did I tell ya? Pure potential here, right!?
Let’s get to the coffered ceiling ideas and inspiration, shall we. The goal is to paint the wood white, and clean up the rough plaster surfaces. This will really brighten the space up and help it feel less dated. I haven’t decided if we stick with white, or maybe add a light tint of the colour you see in the kitchen, in the square sections like they’ve done below. This would help tie the space together and create cohesiveness. Lot’s to think about!
